The camp kicks off with an introduction to design thinking, the process of engineering and entrepreneurship, as students will have the chance to brainstorm innovative ideas to solve real world problems. This hands-on session will see students learning how to 3D print designs of their ideas as they create mini prototypes, and participate in a masterclass on how to brand and market their product. Students will also have the opportunity to hear inspirational stories from guest speakers and mentors with experience in innovation, STEM and business.

Day Two:

The second day draws on the skills and ideas developed on the first day as students complete a series of mini electronics challenges while learning the importance of the engineering process in building a product.
